I've spent quality time thinking about whom I should vote for, and decided again to vote Conservative. I think the criticism's against Harper don't have nearly as much substance as the criticisms vs. those who want his job. And I think its very impressive how Canada has fared since the 2008 economic collapse under Harper's leadership and our country's continued upward trend from it; especially in contrast w/what I've seen for myself and my brother has reported of how fucked over many parts of the States are, all stemming from the collapse.
the economic wellness of this country i place on the structure of our banks, not squarely on harper's shoulders. You also should look at other things harper has done during his reign. billions spent or rather wasted on the g20 summit where the rights of hundreds were violated based on his orders. billions amounting to possibly hunfreds of billions promised to fighter jets, yeah thats good for the economy right? where would we be without our fighter jets? also, under harper's rule Canada has been kicked out of the U.N security council, the first time in canadian history, as well his continual support of the tar sands has led to great contreversy about canada's dedication to a greener tomorrow. i see many more failures than accomplishments in his tenure and the only reason more of the public doesn't see it is because he distracts the public consistantly with his smear ads such as "ignatieff not in it for canada" or "ignatieff too "posh" to understand the public and the publics needs" or better yet, a pidgeon $hiting on dion's shoulder. yes, politician indeed. a.k.a scam artist. a superb one at that too.
